After celebrating its year anniversary last month, the stunning Hurawalhi Island Resort in the Maldives remains one of the most breathtaking destinations not just in the Maldives but in the world.

While the resort’s world-class snorkelling, organic spa and idyllic tropical island setting attracts discerning travellers, it’s the gastronomic offering on show that raises their eyebrows once they arrive.

In fact, the sun-filled resort is somewhat of a culinary paradise, playing host to three exceptional eateries, including the world’s largest all-glass undersea restaurant, ‘5.8’.

The fine food available on offer is down to their seminal chef, Bjoern van den Oever, who brings a wealth of experience to the Hurawalhi Island Resort.

Hurawalhi’s highlight and Bjoern’s pride and joy is ‘5.8’, the incredible undersea restaurant that’s located 5.8 metres beneath the sea. Serving an imaginative and modern menu, and surrounded by out-of-this-world marine views, the romantic restaurant combines the very best ingredients with flawless service. Ask for the multi-course tasting extravaganza, which is available with wine pairing options narrated by the sommelier.

Aquarium offers tranquil sea views and a contemporary menu with organic and artisanal ingredients, while Canneli serves fresh breakfasts and international buffet cuisine.

Beautiful scenery.
